Equality and Diversity Training

Today I undertook the online Equality and Diversity training module and found it both engaging and enlightening, and it caused me to reflect on my own inherent biases/prejudices. The course itself included links to a wide variety of further reading and viewing to enhance this process.

Although I believe this subject to be fundamentally important to society, it is also especially important for a trainee teacher like me who is expected to have Integrity, earn Trust and Respect through my commitment to Professional Development and Social Justice. This awareness (both of myself and wider legislation) is important right across the Standards from differentiation within the classroom to effective and emapathetic working with staff, parents and partner agencies to promote learning and wellbeing.
